The launch of the world's first Jewish book blog!
'People of the Book' is a joint effort between a number of established bloggers and other bibliophiles new to the blog world. Contributors cover an entire spectrum religiously, geographically, in terms of age and interests, and many are authors / publishers in their own right. They are:
- Miriam Shaviv -- Bloghead
- Paul Shaviv -- Bloghead
- Rachel Berenblat -- The Velveteen Rabbi
- Shawn Landres -- Religion and Society
- Harry -- The View from Here and Off the Beaten Bookshelf
- Robert Avrech -- Seraphic Secret
- Ayelet Waldman -- Bad Mother
- Danny Bermant -- Bermant Blog
- Judy Shaviv, David Reuben, Ariel Kahn, Eli Katz -- bibliophiles
As you will see from the website, I've been toying with the idea for a while. I hope the new group blog will become an interesting forum for discussion of Jewish books, Jewish authors, Jewish publishing, Jewish literary trends etc. Please feel free to send me (or any of the bloggers) links to interesting entries on other blogs which might be suitable to link to. Happy reading!
